Roll up, roll up for the annual Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza!
The Elm Tree sits in the heart of Llandudno, right next to the glorious pier with the spectacular seaside views. With lots of fun activities in the surrounding areas, our guests have so much choice; but every early May bank holiday weekend Llandudno becomes a haven for all things FUN!
The annual Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza graces the main streets of Llandudno for the full three days of the bank holiday weekend. Bringing with it, exciting vintage attractions, jaw-dropping entertainment and of course, the fabulous funfair.
The Extravaganza has been bringing the fun to Llandudno for 34 years, so if you haven’t experienced it yet you’re really missing out!
This is Wales’ largest free to attend a family fun event, with something for all the family to enjoy. Whether you have thrill-seekers who can’t wait to jump on a rollercoaster or foodies who love trying some carnival-style street food, or maybe you’re looking to relive happy childhood funfair memories.
A welcome new addition for the 2019 offering is the Victorian Extravaganza Circus! In town for 3 days only; it will make you laugh, gasp and amaze you. Just like the traditional Victorian circuses of old, it will be hosted under a Mini Top. With daily show times, you won’t miss seeing the circus in action.
The funfair has to be considered to be a main draw for the youngsters, last year the event played host to a 35 metre high giant Ferris Wheel, a first for the busy streets of Llandudno. With the traditional offerings of a helter-skelter, a carousel, teacups and skydiver rides, you can have some adrenaline filled fun with all the family.
If funfair rides aren’t your cup of tea, why not explore the wonderful stalls along the street instead? With stalls ranging from different yummy food and drinks to arts and crafts, you can browse and sample at your leisure.
Perhaps you’ve had enough of the funfair for one bank holiday, Llandudno still has more to offer you.
Llandudno Transport Festival
Held in conjunction with the Extravaganza, the Llandudno Transport Festival is held on the seafront showground at Bodafon Farm, overlooking some of the most scenic views in North Wales. The transport festival is the largest of its kind in Wales and is one of the town’s best-loved events.
With 1000’s of exhibits that include examples of transport from all eras including stationary engines, motorcycles, cycles, tractors, buses, lorries, farming/horticultural implement displays and not forgetting the all import trade stands and catering facilities.
Over the weekend there are a multitude of different events that you can mark in your diaries – the Saturday road run, the annual Crosville gathering of buses, coaches and enthusiasts and the Extravaganza street parade of walkers in beautiful costumes, this amazing spectacle lasts for about an hour!
With so much choice this Bank Holiday weekend, why wouldn’t you come and spend it in Llandudno?
